Those so called Scotland fans who follow the team should have a good look at themselves.

Since Rangers’ demise in 2012 there have been very few of their players picked for the national side, due to them playing in the lower leagues.

The days of the Scotland team being littered with Rangers and Celtic players are well gone.

At Hampden on Friday night, the Scots were 3-0 down to Belgium, when Alex McLeish decided to bring on Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack. He was booed by a section of the crowd as he ran on – disgraceful.

You’ve got to feel sorry for Jack, as nobody deserves that sort of low-life behaviour. They were too harsh on the Rangers man, and if he was still at Aberdeen, would he have been booed? No.

Scotland open their Nations league campaign at Hampden Park this Monday against Albania. I wonder if the same fans will boo Allan McGregor, who has been chosen to start the game?

The Rangers stopper has clearly become the Scot’s No.1 goalkeeper, and even most Celtic fans agree.

McLeish had said earlier in the week that it was hard to choose between McGregor and Gordon. You won’t find many Scottish fans voting for Gordon, not on McGregor’s current form.

Rangers midfielder Jack may not be the most-popular midfielder in Scotland, but for a player to be booed while coming on for his national team is a despicable way to behave – shame on you.

Apart from making a mistake it was actually a decent performance from the 26-year-old, and one that he can build on.

No wonder Rangers fans refuse to support Scotland with the continuing attitude towards their players, and this is something which needs to be addressed soon by the SFA. Why?

It is bringing our game into disrepute.
